    As pointed out, this is unlikely, though mostly due to the last one.

    An Arisen could have a Chinchorro body by either their Sahu subtly reshaping until it matched, or more directly by returning in a Chinchorro cultist who was holding one of their Pillars. Speaking the language - well, they just have to learn it. But memories from that far back? Not gonna happen, if they think they are actually Chilean. I'm iffy on the exact timeline, but they would have to have first lived in Irem, undergone the Rite of Return, arose during the first Sothic Turn, then migrated to the region, and formed...

    So... let's spec out these two great Courts.

    The Light-Side Court
    Ruler title: Jedi Master
    Court Emotion: Serenity?
    Bargain:
    Contracts: Trick of the Mind (Common)

    The Dark-Side Court
    Ruler title: Sith Lord
    Court Emotion: Hatred (Fear is Autumn, Anger is Summer, that leaves Hatred and Suffering)
    Bargain:
    Contracts: Choking on Hatred (Common), Treasonous Thoughts (Common)

  • Can you argue it was Abyssal? Or that their future exploiting of this "law" was itself a prophesized event (and thus the Moirae told them whatever it needed to tell them to get them to do what was needed)? Or, can you do a Supernal Retcon, and actually alter what was True before?

    Wouldn't that be two Courts? The Light Side Court and the Dark Side Court?...

    Updated the post above. Still working on a few bits, and I've taken some liberties instead of doing a direct translation.

    I'm uncertain how to make the relation between getting hungrier and feed - as it stands, each feeding increases the Condition, and each day it decreases the Condition. Maybe it should be extended a bit for the lower Conditions before decreasing, and make gaining the higher Conditions harder?

    Another idea here (not yet implemented) is that Feeding inflicts Resistant Lethal damage, so you can't just Feed off another Vampire and heal it back with Rouse...

  • The second effect seems somehow lesser than the first - maybe move the order around? Or enhance its Mask rending effect to also have the caused wounds always visible (even if the become invisible, that sword wound or bruise is floating there, giving them away).

    Would adding a defensive effect make sense?

    Sure, as the mechanical details, but the concept is fine, yes?...

    When the Unchained Pacts "X is my child" for a character and integrates that into one of their Covers. Said child retroactively becomes Demon-Blooded (because they have/had a Demon for a parent now/always).



    That's awfully presumptuous of her. (And one of the things that irks me about Beast - its claim to metaphysical truth/supremacy over the other game-lines)....

    But, as a brand new mortal, couldn't Lunacy make them Wolf-Blooded now?

    And why settle for Stigmatic? Demonic Adoption should be open, right?...

    replied to Hunger in Requiem?
    One nice thing about tying Frenzy to Hunger levels and rolls is that it can always be a risk. Enough penalties can risk Dramatic Failure on its own, and players can always opt to turn normal Failures into Dramatic ones for a Beat.

    If one were to integrate other mechanics into Hunger (such as Physical Intensity bonuses, Predatory Aura strength or effects, or even Supernatural Tolerance), they it adds the same dynamic dilemma that Beast's Satiety does - keep Hungry but able to access more vampiric power, or try to stay Sated to limit the downsides of the vampiric condition, but lack...

    So the Trickery for converted Greys could easily be replicating the mechanics (ask a question about the subject's mental state/thoughts) in exchange for a Glamour, for example.

    Hmm. Ability to buy Supernatural Merits is probably not feasible, but I could see the Trickery for a "Mind-Thief" Kith being that they could "borrow" the use of such a Merit from another by spending a Glamour....

    I thought it didn't necessarily need to be friendly interaction that can cause Family Ties? If so, that opens up more options....

  • Irem was loosely based around Egypt (maybe further south or west), though there anywhere along the Mediterranean is also valid due to trade/travel/slaves/etc. Possibly even further afield, if you need to, though they would be a minority.

    Looking at 2E, Twice-Risen seem to be a bit more common, since now it looks like Mummies can "reincarnate" from the body of any of their cultists that hold one of their Pillars. Even in 1E, it was possible (though risky)....
